After School Enrichment Offerings and Schedule

Our Mt. Washington School students can enjoy a robust offering of after school classes that enrich their educational experience. The collaboration between MWPTA and FOMWS brings an assortment of class offerings to our students. Our After School Enrichment classes are meant to help support the varied interests of your children and are not an after school care program.

 

Once you enroll your child in a class make sure that the teacher has confirmed receipt of your payment and enrollment. 

 

If you have any general questions, want to make a class suggestion, and/or want to share your talents with our school community you can contact Sonal Khemani at programs@mwpta.org.

SESSION THREE (2/28/2022-4/22/2022)

 

 


BIOCITIZEN

 

Los Angeles boasts some of the most beautiful mountain ranges, biodiversity, and urban parks in the world - and we're ready to get your students out there in a fun and safe way! We'll explore age appropriate hikes with a mix of sensory awareness games, natural history journaling, and teamwork activities along the way. 

 

Our combination of experienced and friendly staff, spectacular outdoor classrooms, community building techniques, and long-term mentorship will provide your child with connections to nature, their peers, and themselves. 

 

These adventures bring what students are learning in the classroom into an exciting real world context, and give them the depth of experience you always wanted for them. They may even discover a new subject or passion!

Spring Semester Update:

Firstly, in an effort to create a more contiguous program for staff and students we’re switching the semester-length from 8 weeks to 14-15 weeks, which is in line with other Biocitizen LA ASE groups. This will allow our groups to explore, connect and gain the most out of our program with fewer interruptions and registration logistics.
